So the Autozone here has started putting some STP branded oil on the shelves. Cool looking bottles. I was trying to see if I could find who makes it, but it just says bottled and manufactured by Best Parts INC. I would like to run a VOA or UOA on this stuff but too broke to do just a VOA and gotta run it to do a UOA.

Oil is where AZ tries to make their money. I will likely never buy it because of price. I like the jug design though, a big improvement over the oil AZ house oil.

Yeah, about the same price as M1 at Wal-Mart, or a lot more than Chevron Supreme or TropArctic, for a no-name unknown oil, made by "Best Parts of Memphis, TN" which is Auto Zone, probably a Warren Unilube product, for double the price of Super Tech. How exactly does AZ stay in business-their commercial accounts must be getting 40% discounts!

Wow $24 for some generic oil packaged for Autozone.
I could get Amsoil OE for that price, or any number of name brand full synthetics at Walmart for just $1 more!

Not too bad, but, you can buy Peak motor oil this week for $1.90 a quart at Big Lots. You can also get Wal-Mart SuperTech 5W30 in a 5 quart jug for $9.08 on-line (roll back price) with free in-store pickup.

Not everyone loves to Wally world. I would rather not to have to go to Wally world routinely if I have to. But I do go there at times. Recently I just got the Motorcraft and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum at my Walmart. The Ultra was an accidental shipment to my local store because this store normally does not have the Ultra. I am not against Walmart totally. But I would rather go elsewhere if I can find a way. That doesn't always happen obviously.

does it say on the back label who manufacturers that oil for STP?



Obviously not, usually in places like Europe, Australia, New Zealand, a brand like this typically will be a higher quality product.

The RoW gets high quality gear oils from Castrol, Valvoline, and
Shell, while here in the USA we only have a few average items to choose from.

That's impressive that the STP on OZ is approved for use with
ACEA specs!

STP has never been a winner in my lifetime since Granatelle. Granatelle was show putting about 5 drops of STP oil treatment into one of his race cars to satisfy the public that he used what he sold. STP is all about PR without substance in my opinion. Ed

I was talking for Auto Zone prices. $4 a quart isn't THAT bad. If I needed to do an oil change and didn't want to deal with Walmart I'd go to AutoZone for oil this price. An extra $1 a quart over Walmart isn't too bad.
